Tree Removal Basics
Tree removal is a difficult task and it is not as simple as cutting its trunk. It will be difficult especially for large trees with many branches since they are usually not straight that you can simply cut through. There are many big trees damaged during a storm or they can be blocking access to something, or just being a general nuisance where they are situated.
IT is important that before you fell a tree, the surrounding areas need to be checked. You should call a professional Loveland Tree Removal service especially if there are power lines nearby or you are living on a hill or a cliff. If the tree is on flat ground with clear surrounding areas, then it is safe to cut the tree yourself. But before you begin your tree removal project, you have to remember that this will take time and that you need to proper tools. You will also need two escape routes on both sides of the tree that you will use later on.
The undercut is your first cut. The tree will fall according to this guide. On the side that you want the tree to fall on, you need to cut in a V shaped notch. Cut a notch of 90 degree angle and cut it to one fourth of the diameter of the trunk.
The back cut is the second cut. This cut should be done two inches higher than the undercut's hinge part. The back cut is done on the opposite side where you don't want the tree to fall on. This kind of cut releases the stress on the tree and allow it to fall easier for you.
Go to your escape routes out of the path of the falling tree when it starts to fall. You should resume working only when the tree is safely on the ground.
Next you need to take out the limbs, by the process called limbing. Here you start taking out the branches from the bottom up. You should be on the opposite of the trunk from the branch you are cutting. Tree trunks are usually stored for firewood and so you should start cutting it according to the desired lengths. Branches can be given to a recycling facility so it is good to cut them into the required sizes and bundled them up for pickup.
The stump is best left to the professionals. Under the ground, there are still a lot of tree parts so if you want to remove the stump, you should call professional Loveland Tree Trimming services that can do the stump removal for you.
